Biden’s shocking test results just sent Washington, D.C. into hysterics

The president is no spring chicken. His decline is becoming more obvious by the day.

And now Biden’s shocking test results just sent Washington, D.C. into hysterics.

President Biden has demonstrated poor cognitive performance in private talks with congressional legislators, as his age and mental fitness are called into question ahead of the November presidential election.

Biden, 81, is the oldest president in history, and people and Republican lawmakers have questioned his competence to carry out his duties.

According to The Wall Street Journal, which interviewed 45 politicians and administration officials on Biden’s mental performance, many Republicans and even some Democrats claimed the president revealed his age in private meetings.

The majority of those interviewed by the source who were critical of Biden’s performance were Republicans, however numerous Democrats claimed the president revealed his age in multiple conversations.

These respondents, including administration officials and other Democrats, either attended or were briefed on Biden’s meetings. They did not raise any reservations about the president’s handling of them.

When Biden met with congressional leaders in January to negotiate an agreement to transfer additional funds to Ukraine, he talked so softly that some individuals struggled to hear him, according to five people familiar with the encounter.

The president read from notes to emphasize obvious points, took long pauses, and even closed his eyes for so long that several attendees wondered whether he had tuned out.

When Biden met one-on-one with House Speaker Mike Johnson in February, the president stated that a recent policy change by his administration that jeopardizes some large-scale energy projects was only a study, according to six persons who were briefed on what Johnson recalled from the discussion. Johnson was concerned that the president had forgotten the details of his own policy.

Last year, when Biden was negotiating with House Republicans to raise the debt ceiling, his manner and command of the details seemed to shift from day to day, according to then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and two others involved with the conversations.

On one day, he appeared bright in loose and spontaneous exchanges with Republicans, while on another, he stammered and appeared to rely on notes.

“I used to meet with him when he was vice president. I’d go to his house. He’s not the same person,” McCarthy said.

Previously known in Washington as a master negotiator of legislative deals, possessing detailed knowledge of issues and insights into the other side’s motivations and needs, and excelling under pressure, Biden is now perceived, particularly in the last year after Republicans took control of the House, as an aging president with limited cognitive ability at times.

However, White House officials discounted many of the claims from persons who had met with the president or been briefed on such conversations, claiming that such complaints were motivated by partisan politics.

“Congressional Republicans, foreign leaders and nonpartisan national-security experts have made clear in their own words that President Biden is a savvy and effective leader who has a deep record of legislative accomplishment,” Andrew Bates, a spokesman for the White House, stated.

“Now, in 2024, House Republicans are making false claims as a political tactic that flatly contradict previous statements made by themselves and their colleagues.”

According to administration officials and other participants, Biden made a persuasive argument for delivering aid during his January meeting with Ukraine, and it is routine procedure to use notes in these sessions.

Bates also rejected reports that Biden misspoke during his February conversation with Johnson regarding energy strategy.
